Ingredients

  • 1 (10-ounce) Italian cheese-flavored thin pizza crust (such as Boboli)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup bottled salsa
  • 1/2 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.

Place pizza crust on a baking sheet; bake at 375° for 5 minutes or until crisp.

Mash beans with a fork; combine beans and next 4 ingredients (beans through garlic) in medium bowl, stirring to combine. Spread bean mixture over crust, leaving a 1-inch border. Spoon salsa evenly over bean mixture; top with spinach and cilantro. Drizzle with hot sauce; sprinkle with cheeses. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
